Canning salsa

Has anyone canned "cowboy caviar" (salsa with beans, corn, and italian dressing) if so, I'd love the recipe and canning instructions. Thanks!

Most of the ingredients are low-acid, so you would need to pressure-can it, or increase the vinegar by quite a bit. I don't think you can do that safely, though, because of the oil. The closest thing I can find in my canning books is a corn and tomato relish, which also includes bell and hot peppers, but no beans.

The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you're hungry again. ~ George Miller

It is important to use a tested recipe when canning low-acid foods. Botulism is rare, but deadly.
